Your family resource for Answers to Aging
Many seniors and their caregivers have the misnomer that an estate plan is all that is needed to age with dignity. The estate plan is the tip of the iceberg. Not having decisions made about finances, housing, personal care and other concerns is what sinks many seniors and their caregivers. Once the crisis arises, no one knows exactly what the wishes are of the senior. This is where relationship are broken and caregivers increase in stress.
Family Aging Education is a curriculum for aging-seniors and their loved ones to discuss the concerns that arise with the aging process. Providing seniors the opportunity to impart their desires to age with dignity. Impact Services’ curriculum provides training in talking about aging and a self-guided manual to help families answer the critical questions that arise with the aging process.
